Conservative and New Democratic Party members of Parliament have asked the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada to review a private information leak about former Supreme Court of Canada candidate Glenn Joyal, CBC News reports.

"Under the Privacy Act, our office is required to investigate all complaints that fall within our jurisdiction," OPC Spokesperson Tobi Cohen said.
